India, mocked by us, mars exploration is unique in Asia? Now, Mars, China is here!
As India’s aerospace industry does not have a relatively complete industrial foundation and talent training system, there is a gap in magnitude between the major aerospace nations. But it has always been India’s dream to become a major aerospace nation.
On November 5, 2013, India’s first Mars rover”Mangarian” was located in Sri The Hrigoda Launch Center waited quietly for its moment of glory.”Mangarian” weighs 1.35 tons and is covered with gold reflective foil. It plans to collect data on Martian atmosphere, surface and mineral deposits.
At 14:38 local time, the”Mangarian” was successfully launched. After many orbit changes, it flew 800 million kilometers after Entered Mars exploration orbit in September 2014.
The successful launch of”Mangarian”, despite the strong support of the United States and Russia, still has a milestone significance for Indian aerospace :India became the first country in Asia to successfully launch a Mars rover; the world’s first country to successfully launch a Mars rover for the first time.
Mars exploration in China is actually earlier than India. On November 8, 2011, China’s first Mars probe”Firefly One“, riding on the Russian”Zenith”-2SB rocket, ready to achieve China’s first dream of Mars.
At that time, because China’s deep space measurement and control network had not yet been built, the launch of the Mars probe needed the Russian deep space communication system , Can only choose to cooperate with Russia.
After the successful launch of”Firefly One”, the Russian rocket failed to implement the second orbit change, and the probe failed to break away from low-Earth orbit, and finally”starred the sea.” China failed to embrace Mars for the first time.
However, China’s Mars exploration road has not stopped. After the unremitting efforts of the astronauts, China’s second Mars exploration &34; Tianwen No. 1″ will once again chase dreams to Mars-around July 23, Long March V rocket It will carry &34;Tianwen 1″ to realize the exploration of Mars, and it is planned to completely orbit and land on Mars at one time, and conduct patrols on the surface of the Martian area.
Embrace Mars, we waited too long, and this time, Mars, China is here!
